In an occurrence which some are describing as the greatest tennis victory ever by a Canadian:
Bianca Andreescu wins her first WTA title at BNP Paribas Open
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Canadian Bianca Andreescu has her first WTA title.
The unseeded 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., enjoyed an unprecedented run in the California desert where she became the first wildcard to win the prestigious event that is widely regarded as the biggest tennis tournament outside of the four Grand Slams.
Still though, I don't consider it the greatest tennis victory ever by a Canadian. While I value singles more than doubles in principle, I still have to favor an Olympic Gold Medal and a bunch of majors titles by Daniel Nestor.
I probably would even place victories in the semi-finals of majors above it. Both Genie Bouchard and Milos Raonic have had those.
